The Father of Serpents are a band from Serbia that plays a mixture of doom, goth, and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Age Of Damnation" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and United By Chaos.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some heavy doom metal riffs a few seconds later that also utilize a great amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and also awhile death metal growls start to make their presence known.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some clean playing and the music also mixes in a great amount of goth elements while some tracks also add in a small amount of stringed instruments and when screams are utilized they add in a touch of black metal and some songs also add in a small amount of clean vocals and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
The Father Of Serpents plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's while also mixing in elements of goth and black metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover spiritual survival, battles and war themes.
In my opinion The Father Of Serpents are a very great sounding mixture of goth, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE The Flesh Altar" "Tainted Blood" "The Quiest Ones" and "Viral". 8 out of 10.
